Abstract

The aim of the study was metric analysis of the fourth ventricle in human foetuses. The study was performed on 117 foetuses aged 4–7 months. The area and four dimensions of the fourth ventricle were obtained and the results analysed statistically. The features of the fourth ventricle studied correlate with foetal age to different degrees. The correlation coefficient is greatest for the upper part of the roof.
